I did this command with much the same result.  

rdc@t40:~/sourceforge$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sv.gnu.org:/sources/w3 update w3
cvs update: Updating w3
cvs update: Updating w3/contrib
cvs update: Updating w3/etc
cvs update: Updating w3/etc/w3
cvs update: Updating w3/etc/w3/pixmaps
cvs update: Updating w3/lisp
cvs update: Updating w3/tests
cvs update: Updating w3/texi
rdc@t40:~/sourceforge$ 

I then did the checkout of the emacs-w3m cvs with these results.  Note
that this is also a checkout command, as far as I can tell.  I snipped
out a bunch, but There are lines that look the same as what I get for
the w3 update and / or checkout.  I have included a few of these as
well.  

rdc@t40:~/sourceforge$ cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.namazu.org:/storage/cvsroot co emacs-w3m
cvs checkout: Updating emacs-w3m
U emacs-w3m/ChangeLog
U emacs-w3m/Makefile.in

[snip]

cvs checkout: Updating emacs-w3m/attic
cvs checkout: Updating emacs-w3m/doc
U emacs-w3m/doc/Makefile.in
U emacs-w3m/doc/emacs-w3m-ja.texi

I'll remember that.  I was not aware that there was a difference in
practice.

As far as I know, url is now a part of emacs starting with version 22.
I have not updated url since I started using cvs emacs.

As far as w3 et al, I do an install with these from my sourceforge
directory, which holds all of my cvs trees, to my home directory
hierarchy. 

Thanks for the help,
